At every Homecoming, BYU honors outstanding alumni who have made significant contributions to their professions, families, or church with the Distinguished Alumni Service and Service to Family Awards. The university also acknowledges nonalumni who have given substantial service to BYU with the Honorary Alumni Award.
The Alumni Association is now accepting nominations for the 2006 awards; the deadline for nominations is Feb. 24. Nominations may be submitted by anyone, and there is no limit to the number of nominations an individual may make. BYU employees, Alumni Association board members, Church missionaries, General Authorities, and government officials are not eligible. General Authorities should not be contacted for letters of support. Consideration will be given to all nominations but especially to those that provide concise yet detailed information regarding how the nominee meets the award criteria.
INFO: Nomination forms and awards criteria are available online at alumni.byu.edu or by calling the Alumni Association at 1-800-437-4663.
